Please be aware that students must meet MHSAA and TCAPS Eligibility Requirements in order to participate in Educational Athletics. Areas that must be met include: Enrollment at Central High School, Age, current Physical Examination on file*, Maximum Enrollment, Maximum Competition, Undergraduate Standing, Previous Academic Credit Record, Current Academic Credit Record, Transfer Students, Undue Influence, Amateur Status/Awards, and Limited Team Membership. If you have any questions or concerns regarding any of the above requirements, please contact the Central High School Athletic Office for discussion and initial eligibility status prior to your child’s participation in Trojan Athletics.
*Please note that current physical examinations (signed by the M.D., D.O., Physician’s Assistant or Nurse Practitioner who administers the physical examination) are those that are conducted on or after April 15 of the previous school year (i.e., April 15, 2016, for the entire 2016-17 school year). Students must have a current physical on file prior to participation in tryouts or practice…there are no exceptions to this requirement. Parents of middle school-aged students are encouraged to schedule annual physicals on or after the April 15 date to ensure that the date of the annual exam is valid as they enter their 9th Grade year at Central High School. Families that schedule annual child wellness exams often do so on dates prior to the MHSAA-required date of April 15, resulting in having to pay for another exam within the year.
It is not necessary to submit both a TCAPS and an MHSAA Sports Physical form.
